Ar-Rahman Shows Mercy To Those Who Have Mercy On Others

The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) once kissed Al-Hasan Ibn ‘Alee (i.e. his grandson) while Al-Aqra’ Ibn Haabis was in his presence. So Al-Aqra’ said to him: [b]"You kiss your children. I swear by Allaah, I have ten children and I never kissed any one of them!" So the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: "He who doesn’t show mercy (to others) will not be shown mercy (by Allaah)."[/b]

Verily, mercy - in our religion - encompasses this world and the hereafter, as well as mankind, animals, birds, and the surrounding habitats. Allaah says:

[b] "And My mercy encompasses every thing."[/b]

Allaah has described Himself with mercy and He has also described His prophets and righteous servants with it. Allaah says:

Let the games begin.

Clearly I have not been paying enough attention to the games industry.

Charity Begins at (my Future) Home

I recently met up with one of my oldest and dearest friends for coffee. The conversation often comes to Islam, because he was very upset and angry with me when he first found out I converted to Islam.

Anyway, the talk turned to charity, and I was recounting tales of some of my Muslim friends who are, masha'Allah, [b]extremely[/b] generous with their money. I was explaining to him how important kindness and giving is in Islam, because we believe that everything we give in this life will be repaid to us, many times over, in the next life.

Spring is Here!

I went out today in my back garden, hanging clothes up on the line and just looked and saw how beautiful it was. Then I relise I hardly go out. I used to be a great netball player until I converted to Islam and my teacher wouldn't let me wear trousers instead of short skirts so I gave it up. I'm not sad, just disappionted that I can't keep active. But then I went outside then I asked my mum if we could drive to our nearest park. I walked with her up to the top of the hill then back and I felt fitter. Me and my friends are going running there soon. I'm going to make a weekly thing out of it.

Ignorance is boring

The general state of the muslim people bothers me. It bothers me when they display ignorance to even the most basic of Islamic teachings.

It bothers me when even the elders prefer to hold onto their cultural beliefs for fear of what people would say. When they should be more worried about what Allah (swt) will say come judgement day. Even when they have been presented with the truth and beauty of Islam they refuse on grounds of "what will the people say".
